Is HTC's latest blog post hinting at HTC One Mini?

An infographic post on the handset maker's blog may signal the impending arrival of the HTC One Mini.


A blog post on HTC's Web site may signal the impending debut of the smaller HTC One, rumored to be called the HTC One Mini.

The large infographic doesn't explicitly name the upcoming smartphone, yet it's hard to imagine any other reason for the post. Citing a desire to "bring the One experience to as many people as possible," it feels as if we're on the eve of an announcement. Rather than tech talk, however, we're treated to references to "Game of Thrones," Donatalla Versace, Spud Webb, and a Trinidad Moruga chili pepper.

HTC did something similar prior to the release of the HTC One; that time an infographic appeared two weeks before the official introduction of the flagship device. Considering the recent spate of leaks and sightings , we might only infer that the smaller handset is on the horizon.

According to AndroidNext (translate), the hardware could include a 4.3-inch 1,280x720-pixel display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and 4-megapixel Ultrapixel camera. Keeping in line with the HTC One experience, we should also anticipate Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and HTC Sense 5 UI for the smaller iteration.
